Lucien Herve Summary

Lucien Herve: White Spain and Black Spain by Inaki Bergera

Lucien Herve (1910-2007) was one of the great architectural photographers of the 20th century. His methodological and conceptual patterns were reflected in his work, which includes a long collaboration with Le Corbusier. In 1958 he launched the project for a photobook on the monastery of El Escorial commissioned by the RM publishing house in Barcelona, and a year later, during a trip around Spain, a second commission on popular Mediterranean architecture arose. Although they remained unpublished, both works were the object of constant revision by the photographer throughout his life. Sixty years later, both photobooks are published, preceded by specialised texts by architects Javier Mosteiro and Marco Iuliano. The publication is completed by a volume in which Inaki Bergera and art historian Horacio Fernandez offer us an overview of the artist's life and investigate the relationship between these two projects. Text in English and Spanish.

About Inaki Bergera

Lucien Herve (Hungary, 1910-2007) was a photographer. His photographs transcend the visual to give rise to profound conceptual reflections, and his work is imbued with a firmly rooted critical humanism. In 1958, Herve received a commission from RM, a publishing house in Barcelona, for a photobook on the monastery of El Escorial. During a trip to Spain in 1959, this first project was extended to a second commission to photograph Mediterranean popular architecture. For various reasons, neither book was ever published until now. However, both projects were constantly revised by the photographer throughout his life.
